Science fiction and fantasy contain lots of stories that bend the walls of reality—so it should come as no surprise that there are also tons of narrators who break the fourth wall or otherwise disrupt normal storytelling. But which story has the most delightfully sarcastic or witty narrator?

Please include a picture, poster, clip, book cover, comics panel, TV promo or other illustration of your chosen narrator. And please mention the name of the work, and why the narrator is so great. Thanks!
